Dentists Launch Halloween Candy Buy-Back Program

A pair of Philadelphia-area dentists want to pay you cash for whatever Halloween candy you have left and send it overseas to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Dentists Nalin and Arpan Patel, of Fairless Hills, PA, are offering to pay $1 a pound for the leftover candy.

“Not only will it save your teeth, our troops that are serving our country overseas will be able to enjoy a Halloween away from home,” the dentists explained. “Now during these hard times, the spirit of giving and helping is needed more than ever.”

They are accepting candy from November 1-5.
